What I AM impressed by is the things the Frostbite engine is already doing for this game. The on the field product is looking more and more solid by the day. My number 1 gameplay complaint last year (QB inaccuracies) has been pretty much taken care of.

With all the legacy issues the dev team has taken care of, along with the tuning of their already solid gameplay foundation last year, this looks to be a REALLY good season for an on the field product.
I'm right there with you, this post sums up my excitement for the game really well.

Very disappointing to me. Another year without Football .

All I play is offline Franchise modes and have not been impressed with Madden and it sounds like pretty much no time went into the most important sports game mode.

I was going to get last year's game, since I haven't gotten a football game since upgradding to Xbox One.
But compared to NBA 2K MyLeague, it feels so shallow (just played EA access). There is so little customization & options. I guess I will keep waiting for some real work to be put into Madden's Franchise mode.

As I said though, Rex saying it was about time to add it to the game cause it was in 2k 10 years ago made me cringe because there are a lot of things from 2k 10 years ago that people have asked for much more then sideline interactions (highlight shows, etc).
I read your entire post and I see that you do enjoy the game. But for you to say,

But when I watch interviews like this it always shocks me just how disconnected Rex and others speaking for Madden seem to be from a large portion of the sim community despite saying they are sim guys
is completely wrong. I can list about 10 features that seem to have been added/improved in madden 18 that have threads with 50+ pages from posters on these forums asking for them.

I don't really know where to ask this question so I will just ask it in here. Rex tweeted that we can steer RAC catches now so what I would like to know is will the CPU do this as well? I hate seeing the CPU catch the ball and then run out of bounds.

You're probably right, I did hesitate a while on that bit. Basically, listening to the devs in interviews and stuff I often feel like they never have the same mindset as I do, despite some of the awesome new additions - which I really do appreciate. Saying they are disconnected from the whole sim community was probably exaggerating it and not an accurate way to describe it. Thanks for pointing this out.

Actually I agreed with you before. It feels disconnected because sometimes it seems they add or address things just to say they addressed it, or to "shut us up" in a sense. Sometimes there's isn't much thought or effort put into the things we want or request.

I'm not saying that for everything, but for some things it seems that way.

Right, I'm not here to bash you. Not my intent at all. As you pointed out in Gosens post was pretty much how a lot of people feel. I get the frustration with the addition of the new mode. And to hear Rex in the interview honestly say it basically did take resources away from other parts of the game is cringe worthy to me as well. Looking at fifa's presentation and stadium detail, I desperately want that for madden. But Fifa is always a year ahead which does stink.

My gripe around here is again exactly what Gosens pointed out. Everyone is focusing on what is left out of the game instead of the improvements that have been made. Again stuff that people have been BEGGING for is getting announced. Stuff I expected this community in particular to be absolutely amazed by. We'll have to wait to really see it first, but I'm going to keep praising the devs on these forums because they really do understand what we want.

You would definitely know more than me about this stuff. We're all still in wait-and-see mode but I just continue to look back at the madden 06-10 days and know what we have today is from these new devs. Was Ian a great dev? I mean he definitely had this community really involved but those promises and blogs he would put out were just a vision and let down a lot of people. I remember momentum and wr/db interaction blogs. Stuff didn't even make it into the game because it was extremely hard to develop. Thats a whole different story all together though.

But for me, I see this team actually getting things done. Is it all perfect? of course not. But I see madden finally being on par with other sports games, which is what I've always wanted.
